Everlost is a fictional book by Neal Shuterman. I think this book is very interesting, and gives you a different perspective on life and death, and the in between. I like reading the different take on "limbo". (In between death and living) Everlost is a world of children who didn't make it to the "light" and it's all over Earth, but the living can't see over hear them. The major conflict at first is trying to find away out of Everlost. Nick and Allie both died in a car crash when their cars hit each other. On their way to the "light" Nick and Allie hit each other and went of course and found themselves in Everlost. They then Met Leaf. Who has been in Everlost for a very long time. They decide to find out more about Everlost, before trying to find away out. The McGill is a monster who is "the pet of the devil and is now running free". He captures Nick and Leaf. Allie tries to find away to defeat the McGill, and save her friends. Nick escaped and went to get help from Mary High Tower. She is like a mother to all the kids in Everlost and keeps them safe. While Nick and Mary are on there way Leaf and Allie wait for him back on the McGill's ship. The author writes in away that makes you feel what the characters feel. Like when Nick comes to get Mary you can feel the love and happiness Mary feels when she sees him. Mary doesn't always show emotion but, when every Nick is around she shows her feeling for him by hugging him and kissing him. I recommend this book to 9th and 8th graders who liked The Five People You Meet in Heaven , you will love it th

I have read a lot of Shusterman's novels, such as Unwind and Downsiders, but this is the first novel of his that I really struggled to get through. I don't know what it is about Everlost, but I never got into the story. I began reading it back in October of 2010 and it's taken me eight months to finish the novel. I was surprised it took me so long, especially since I really like Shusterman's writing style , and I tend to start and finish books in the same day. It's very rare that I put one aside for any length of time, but that's what happened with this novel. Perhaps this novel is too MG for me, or maybe the characters didn't sit just right; I don't know, but this story, overall, just isn't for me.
While the synopsis drew me in, causing me to pick up the novel in the first place, the characters weren't memorable, and while I thought the idea of Everlost, a world in between, was a great idea, I found my attention wandering as I read-I had a difficult time staying focused and, honestly, I can't pinpoint why. However, this just goes to show that not all stories interest people in the same way-it doesn't mean the author did a bad job by any means because, as I already stated, Shusterman has written some great novels that I really like. That being said, I can only give this novel, personally, one star.

    Great book

    This book was somewhat disturbing that souls were able to skinjack but i still loved it. I love the Chocolate Ogre part at the end. Very clever Mr.Shusterman.
